Rezension:

"An impassioned argument backed by scientific data that is geared toward an educated general readership. Anyone interested in the fate of the rainforests--and the world--should check it out."- Publishers Weekly "On the Edge is the definitive assessment of the single most important factor in the future of Earth's biodiversity." --Edward O. Wilson, university research professor emeritus, Harvard University "In this new book the distinguished biologist Claude Martin summarizes the bad news and the good news about rainforest conservation, the leading threats to the world's rainforests, and the ways in which we can best deal with those threats." --Jared Diamond, Pulitzer-prize-winning author of best-selling books Guns, Germs, and Steel and The World until Yesterday "Of all invasive species, none has been more destructive than us... Martin provides us with a description of the catastrophic effects of human activity and a description of some of the possible avenues away from this destructive path." --David Suzuki, internationally renowned environmentalist "Claude Martin has a long experience in tropical forest conservation, both as a scientist and as former director general of WWF International, and in this book he presents a vitally important agenda for the 21st century to save the biodiversity and indigenous communities of the world's precious tropical rainforests. I urge you to read it. --Yolanda Kakabadse, President, WWF International "To save civilization, there is nothing more urgent today than to regenerate and conserve our highly threatened forests--most importantly our tropical forests. This book comes just in time... [and shows] how systems-based solutions could yet bring humanity back from the brink of self-destruction." --Ashok Khosla, former president, IUCN and copresident, Club of Rome "On the Edge is more than just a very comprehensive consolidation of information about the tropical rainforests: it also builds a very compelling argument about what drives deforestation and reports an array of success stories of how to conserve, regenerate, and sustainably manage this Earth's treasure." --Tasso Azevedo, former chief of the Brazilian Forest Service and cochair of Megaflorestais "Claude Martin's deeply impressive account of the state and fate of the rainforests is the place to turn while there is still a bit of time left" --James Gustave Speth, author of The Bridge at the Edge of the World
